Cancer Free Cobbler

I recently dropped off some food, including a peach and blackberry cobbler, at my friend's house. Her mom was going through chemo and she was worried. It's a scenario I know well. There's the diagnosis, the worry, the treatment, the sickness, and the ever present waiting. You are always waiting for more news, hoping it's good, anything but bad. The last thing you want to do is concern yourself with the mundane task of making dinner.

My friend got good news the other day. Her mom's treatment was a success. Some think it was the chemo, but my bet is with the cobbler.

Cancer Free Cobbler

2 lbs peaches, peeled, pitted and cubed
1 cup of blackberries
1/4 cup white sugar
1 tsp cornstarch
1 tbsp lemon juice
pinch of salt

1 cup all purpose flour
3 tbsp plus 1 tsp sugar
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
5 tbsp cold unsalted butter cut into cubes
1/3 cup yoghurt

Preheat oven to 425 F, and place rack on lower level. Toss peaches and blackberries in sugar and let sit for 30 minutes. Drain fruit and save juice. Whisk 1/4 cup of juice with corn starch, lemon, and salt, and mix with fruit. Place fruit mixture in a greased glass pan. Bake for 10 minutes.
With a food processor, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add butter and pulse until grainy. Transfer to a bowl and mix in yoghurt. Form six dough balls and place on fruit mixture. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake 20 minutes, and let cool 20 minutes. Enjoy.
Sorry about my lack of a cobbler photo but it was eaten too quickly.
